Beaufort Academy’s Big Five-O party celebrating their 50th school year lived up to the hype! It certainly was the party of the half-century with more than 320 attendees from the local community as well as BA alumni from all over the country. The Mike Veal Band out of Atlanta kept the crowd on the dance floor most of the night. Many only left the dance floor to go back for second and third helpings of delicious and creative dishes by Cru Catering out of Charleston. Of course, the auction was a huge success, with items ranging from vacations to adventures to art and handmade furniture.
The volunteer chair of the overall event was Katie Huebel, who is a BA alumna and current parent. Workings with her heading up the various committees were: Marjory Gray, Virginia Rhodes, Wendi Lynn, Louise Coleman, Courtney Pinchney, and Amy Pinckney. You only get to celebrate 50 years once, and this party was the way to do it. Happy Birthday Beaufort Academy!
